Denial Ain’t Just A River In Egypt

It was around twenty years ago when I was written off by my Psychology Professors in my first year of college. I implored them to help me as I had been sexually abused and needed help. I received no help, guidance or counseling. The matter and I were instantly dismissed. We never spoke about it ever again. Twenty years later, when I witness the aftermath of the Sandusky verdict and the rampant denial by the NCAA, Board of Trustees of Penn State, Joe Paterno and the list of others, I just find the entire situation all too familiar. That’s why I love the Mark Twain quote in the blog heading.

How Denial Will Delay Your Highest Good

That one day amongst few others profoundly altered the course of my life. Due to the denial first from my family and then my institution, I found no other means to cope other than to drop out of college and transplant myself far away from everyone. Looking back at that time their denial cost me many years of my life. I understand that today things are exactly how they are supposed to be. And I am absolutely ok with that. But evidently, denial brings with it the energy of procrastination. And in the metaphysical understanding of this energy, when you procrastinate, you not only delay the imminent task at hand, but you postpone your highest good. There’s no such thing as a free lunch after all.

It’s easier to look back and recognize the denial. How do you get present to it if it exists in your life right now? Do you see a recurring pattern in your life? Are you coming up against similar situations, people and obstacles over and over again? If you are then you could be in denial about something in your life. The good news is – you can do something about it.

5 Steps To Be Free From The Past

1. Notice where you are in your life, what your world looks like and who surrounds you

2. Recognize how you feel about where you are in your life

3. Try using guided or silent meditation to spend 15 minutes a day to observe your breath, thoughts and mind (you can get a free mp3 meditation from my website)

4. If you like to write, use your writing to help you release. Writing will inspire profound insights and transformation

5. Notice where you are and how you feel about it again. Notice any changes in your breath, body, mind and thoughts.

These 5 steps are a good starting point. They will help you get present. Denial will keep you stuck in the quagmire of the past. While there you are not reaching your fullest potential or manifesting you higher purpose. Get unstuck by trying these 5 steps and tell me about it. I would love to hear from you.
